I would love the opportunity to have the "difficulty" of tuning in the big boy sats! I would also find pletny of uses besides the sats for a radio of that caliber...And one of these days I will gladly spend the money on the biggest badest radio I can find and then I will build the biggest bestest tower ever with a rediculous amount of elements and rotater dealy bob!!!
So there!
